Jump Tomorrow

 UK - 2001 - PG Certificate - 97 minutes
Romantic comedy.
When George, a shy and awkward introvert, meets Alicia, a stunning Latin girl, he is instantly smitten.
Unfortunately, George is due to marry a childhood friend from Nigeria in just four days' time. When Gerard, a boisterous and lovesick Frenchman stumbles into George's life, the stage is set for a gentle, humorous love story.
"Jump Tomorrow" is a road-movie that weaves reality and fantasy into a comic tale of the quirks and passions of modern romance.
Written and directed by Joel Hopkins
